Editor’s Corner: Time to let go of Tony Danza

Guess what guys and dolls? This is the last selection of misheard song lyrics (a.k.a. mondegreens) I have for you from Hold Me Closer, Tony Danza, by Charles Grosvenor Jr. The book actually has quite a few more entries and other items, but they don’t all pass the Human Resources political correctness test.

I don’t have a particular contest in mind to entice you with, but it is almost the season of giving—whether you celebrate Festivus, Christmas, Kwanza, Hanukkah, the Winter Solstice, or something else—so I would like to give this lightly used copy of the book away to one of you.

If you are a JHA employee or a credit union client, just send me an email and I’ll put you in the random drawing to win!

Song Title Artist/Group Actual Lyrics Mondegreen
Hips Don’t Lie Shakira She makes a man want to speak Spanish She makes a man want to see spandex
My Favorite Mistake Sheryl Crow I woke up and called this morning I woke up in goth this morning
Anthem for the Year 2000 Silverchair We’ll take your fascism away We’ll take your fashions on the way
1979 The Smashing Pumpkins Shakedown, 1979 Shaft died, 1979
Wannabe Spice Girls Make it last forever Naked lasts forever
Goodbye Spice Girls Before the pain turns into fear Before the painters interfere
It’s Been Awhile Staind I’ve stretched myself beyond my means I scratch myself behind my knee
Meet Virginia Train Meet Virginia, I can’t wait to, meet Virginia Beef or chicken, I can’t wait to have, beef or chicken
Mysterious Ways U2 She moves in mysterious ways Shampoo in mysterious ways
Sunday Bloody Sunday U2 Sunday, bloody Sunday Someday, buddy, someday
Seven Nation Army The White Stripes I’m gonna fight ‘em off I’m gonna find a moth
Sharp Dressed Man ZZ Top Every girl’s crazy ‘bout a sharp dressed man Never go crazy for a short fat man
